Love Helps Those

Paul Overstreet

© Scarlet Moon Music, BMI

Grandma she don't really get around good anymore
In fact to get her out of the house is really quite a chore
But everyday somebody seems to find the time to stop
To see if grandma needs something from where they go to shop

You see love helps those who cannot help themselves
It cares about those hearts that's been put up on a shelf
It'll introduce a lonely soul to a lonely someone else
Love helps those who cannot help themselves

Mr Johnson has a small farm down in southern Tennessee
But one year he took ill before the time to plant the seed
And no one knows which neighbor planted or just won't tell
But he had his best crop ever by the time that he got well

You see love helps those who cannot help themselves...

A little helpless baby child was born into this world
She didn't have a daddy and her mother was just a girl
But there came a young man willing to give both of them a home
The girl he married the child he cherished as though she was his own

Cause you see love helps those who cannot help themselves...
Yeah love helps those who cannot help themselves

All The Fun

Paul Overstreet - Taylor Dunn

© Scarlet Moon Music, BMI

Well the guys that I work with they work real hard and they like to have a good time
At the end of the day it's their time to play and they like to go and unwind
Well they make a lot of jokes and they laugh and they poke fun at me cause I don't stay long
And they can't understand why a married man is in a hurry to ever go home

I just tell them that all the fun that I'm ever gonna need I got waitin' at home for me
Yeah she likes to dance and she loves romance and she throws a great party
No there's never any dull minutes around here somethin's always goin' on
All the fun that a man could want I got waitin' for me at home

Hey I used to be a fool and a sucker for a high time anytime night or day
I had a round the clock smile just call me and I would be readily on my way
But to tell you the truth I was lonesome and blue prayin' for a little light in my life
Then a miracle came and everything changed and I made that little woman my wife

Let me tell you that all the fun that I'm ever gonna need I got waitin' at home for me...

We got two little kids callin' me daddy
Runnin' all over the house
When they finally go to sleep their mama and me
Cuddle and we snuggle and we party on the couch

Yeah I got all the fun that I'm ever gonna need I got waitin' at home for me...

I said all the fun that a man could want I got waitin' for me at home
Right at home
I got all the fun that a man could want
All the fun that a man could want
I got all the fun that a man could want
All the fun that a man could want

Call The Preacher

Paul Overstreet

© Scarlet Moon Music, BMI

We agreed to wait postpone our wedding date
Well I don't know what I was thinking of
Now I want to change my mind I don't want to waste our time
I'm sure that you're the one I'll always love

So call the preacher call our friends
Book the church house for the weekend
Let the wedding bells start ringing in this town
And to prove that you're the one
I wanna put a ring upon
That pretty finger that I've been wrapped around
[ steel ]
I know there's lots of men who'd rather have a live-in
It's fun to have your cake and eat it too
And I've been there before and I kept that open door
But honey I don't ever plan on leaving you

So call the preacher call our friends...

Yes to prove that you're the one I wanna put a ring upon
That pretty finger that I've been wrapped around

Richest Man On Earth

Don Schlitz - Paul Overstreet

© New Don Songs, ASCAP

I've heard tell of millionaires and billionaires and such
Who gathered all their treasures and still did not have enough
If money could buy peace of mind I guess they'd have it all
But all the money in the world won't hold you when you fall

We've got a roof over our heads and the kids have all been fed
And the woman I love most lies close beside me in our bed
Lord give me the eyes to see exactly what it's worth
And I will be the richest man on earth

Lord when I wished I had the things that you gave someone else
I pray that you'll forgive me for just thinking of myself
I haven't been as thankful as I know I ought to be
I should be more than satisfied with all you've given me

We've got a roof over our heads and the kids have all been fed...

One thing is for certain it don't matter when you die
If you had a million or if you just got by

We've got a roof over our heads and the kids have all been fed...
Yes I will be the richest man on earth

Sowin' Love

Don Schlitz - Paul Overstreet

© Don Schlitz Music, ASCAP

I used to love to walk behind my daddy
As he plowed our garden every spring
My little bare feet in the dirt would make me happy
As we talked about what harvest time would bring

He'd say son this whole world is like a garden
And what you sow you're surely gonna reap
Where bitter seeds are planted hearts will harden
But a caring hand will make the harvest sweet

And he was sowin' love for the family
He was sowin' love he took a little extra time
Looking forward to a bountiful harvest
Like a good father does he was sowin' love
[ guitar ]
How I used to love to sit and watch my mama
Working with her needle and her thread
So patiently she'd listen to our problems
And we knew she heard every word we said

She'd say children this old world is full of scratches
And in your life you're bound to have a few
I guess that's why the good Lord gave us patches
So we could start each day out feeling new

And she was sowin' love for the family
She was sowin' love she took a little extra time
Looking forward to a bountiful harvest
Like a good mama does she was sowin' love

Yeah they were sowin' love for their family
They were sowin' love they took a little extra time
Looking forward to a bountiful harvest
They could take good care of us they were so in love
They did it all for us they were sowin' love

Love Never Sleeps

Paul Overstreet

© Scarlet Moon Music, BMI

There have been times when we went to bed
Hurting from things I wish we hadn't have said
Closing our eyes and feeling alone
Falling to sleep so tired we couldn't go on
Only to find when we woke up
While we slept love kept its hand on both of us

Love never sleeps it's constantly at work
Healing where we hurt and being our hero we know
Love is always at its best it never gives us less
To keep us from defeat and love won't ever sleep

But most of the time we do real good
Treating each other the way that we should
And riding the waves of the good times that come
Sharing the laughter and sharing the fun
And even then love's at our side
I don't know what we'd ever do if we lost our faithful guide

Love never sleeps it's constantly at work...
[ guitar ]
Love never sleeps it's constantly at work...
It's constantly at work...

Dig Another Well

Don Schlitz - Paul Overstreet

© New Don Songs, ASCAP

Well Ike had a blessing from the Lord up above
He gave him a beautiful woman to love
A place to live and some land to farm
Two good legs and two good arms

Well the devil came sneaking around one night
Decided he would do a little evil to Ike
Figured he would hit old Ike where it hurts
so he filled up all of Ike's wells with dirt

And when Ike went out for his morning drink
He got a dipper full of dirt and his heart did sink
But he knew it was the devil so he said with a grin
God blessed me once and he can do it again
He blessed me once and he can do it again

So when the rains don't fall and the crops all fail
And the cows ain't puttin' any milk in the pail
Don't sit around waitin' for a check in the mail
Just pick up the shovel and dig another well
Pick up the shovel and dig another well

Now me and old Ike got a lot in common
The Lord blessed me with a beautiful woman
He gave me a job he gave me a home
He gave me a well to call my own

Now when I go out for my morning drink
And get a dipper full of dirt my heart does sink
But I think of old Ike and I have to grin
Cause God blessed me once and he can do it again
He blessed me once and he can do it again

When the rains don't fall and the crops all fail...
[ guitar ]
Well the good book says Ike finally won
(Pick up the shovel dig another well)
The devil got tired and he left him alone
(Pick up the shovel dig another well)
All I know someday I'm gonna win too
(Pick up the shovel dig another well)
Cause the good book tells me what to do
(Pick up the shovel dig another well)
Pick up the shovel and dig another well
Pick up the shovel and dig another well
Pick up the shovel and dig another well

Seein' My Father In Me

Paul Overstreet - Taylor Dunn

© Scarlet Moon Music, BMI

Last night we brought the children by to visit their grandpa
And it's plain to see they're truly part of him
While we were there their grandma took out some old photographs
Man he sure looked a lot like me back then

I'm seein' my father in me I guess that's how it's meant to be
And I find I'm more and more like him each day
I notice I walk the way he walks I notice I talk the way he talks
I'm starin' to see my father in me

And today I took my wife for a walk down that old dirt road
Where my daddy took my mom so many times
And we found the time to mention things we never had before
And we shared some thoughts about the family life

Yeah I'm seein' my father in me I guess that's how it's meant to be...

And now looking back I can recall the times we disagreed
When I could not take gold of his old fashioned ways
And the more I tried to prove him wrong the more I proved him right
Now I know why he still stood by me when I went through that stage

I'm seein' my father in me I guess that's how it's meant to be...
And I'm happy to see my father in me

What God Has Joined Together

Paul Overstreet - Paul Davis

© Scarlet Moon Music, BMI

With shaky knees and my old nervous grin
We stood before the Lord and all our friends
Your daddy cried a teardrop as he gave his girl away
I promised to keep lovin' you until my dying day

And what God has joined together let no one come between
Or try to put us under lovers building their dreams
The light that shines forever is now burning in our hearts
What God has joined together let no one ever part
[ mandolin ]
Well that was several years ago today
And we walked some rocky roads along the way
But the Lord has helped us make it through the crazy ups and downs
And when we took the wrong road he turned us both around

What God has joined together let no one come between...
[ mandolin ]
When the evening of our lives on earth is near
And our eyes grow weak and words are hard to hear
Well I pray the Lord is tender when he comes to call us home
And he lets us go together so we'll never be alone

What God has joined together let no one come between...
What God has joined together let no one ever part

Homemaker

Paul Overstreet - Dan Tyler

© Scarlet Moon Music, BMI

To me she is a beauty queen
I love to watch her on the screen in our home movies
And when she sings around the house
She's got a voice that knocks me out she's my favorite singer
But you won't see her on TV or hear her on the radio
Wordly fame is not her aim and she's the first to let you know

She wants to be a homemaker it's her dream to raise the family
And give her love to just one man and I thank God it's me
I'll never underestimate her cause she could take this word and turn it on
But she takes her love and makes our house a home

She can't afford to spend her days in an old soap opera haze
She's much too busy
At night she puts the kids to bed she's making sure their prayers get said
Before she lays down with me
It's plain to see that she's not seeking glory on this earth
Cause she believes in honesty and the joy of giving birth

She wants to be a homemaker it's her dream to raise the family...

Neath The Light Of Your Love

Don Schlitz - Paul Overstreet

© New Don Songs, ASCAP

I don't need a candle light to guide
My way through the darkest night
I'll rest in the faith of your power and might
And I will sleep neath the light of your love

I will sleep neath the light of your love
I will guide my way till the sun comes up
If the moon and stars should fall from above
I will sleep neath the light of your love

And I don't need a lantern's glow
To keep me safe from all I don't know
Your watchful eyes will never close
And I will sleep neath the light of your love

Yes I will sleep neath the light of your love...
[ piano ]
The day will come when kingdoms fall
The trumpet sounds for one and all
The strong will kneel and the proud will crawl
We will sleep neath the light of your love

Yes I will sleep neath the light of your love...
Yes I will sleep neath the light of your love...
